Pepper sprinkled on top of bruiser black fruit. Full-bodied but pleasantly and seductively slippery smooth. Quite a spectacular dinner party wine, party if the conversation hasn’t got rolling yet.

Reviews and Ratings

Paula Bernardino rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

I very much enjoy this full-bodied wine which tastes and smells of black cherries. A nice mix of grapes: 70% grenache + 20% syrah + 10% mourvedre. I discovered it at a steakhouse in Calgary and went really well with a medium rare filet mignon. I've also paired it with hard cheeses. I always make sure I have a bottle at home.
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

What a treat - Lori dug this one out of her cellar and shared it January 2016 :)
Big and plush, chewy and full-bodied, leather, blackberry, tannins are softening, wow. Gorgeous now, but will cellar a few more years, if you have any left and have the patience! Great with lamb, beef, stews, especially in the French style.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
